This morning I was looking through all my baking books to make something special for my friends birthday. In my mind I wanted something elegant and not too time consuming. A few weeks ago, on one of the Saturday mornings my daughter and I, were drooling watching Nigella Lawson make chocolate pots on the FNW. It has been in the back of my mind to give it a try because it looked gooey and simply delicious. I thought today was a great opportunity to give it a try. Seriously, if anyone wants to make anything simple please do give it a try. I have to confess that I did change the type of sugar used, but it turned out better than I thought it would and the most important thing, the birthday girl loved it.
